Leadership Development Series

In order to attend any workshop you MUST RegisterThis link will open in a new window

Study the many facets of leadership through interactive workshops and seminars. The LDS workshops provide the resources necessary to develop personal integrity, organizational understanding, communication skills, and an ethic of service. Though not required, we suggest beginning with LDS 050. This workshop will expose you to the format, purpose, learning outcomes, and reflection that are incorporated throughout the program. We also suggest you follow LDS 050 with LDS 116, where you will learn about a variety of leadership styles that will be referenced in many other workshops. All workshops begin at 6:30pm and the dress is casual. For more information or if you have any questions, contact Leslie Beddingfield.
